Implementation of Human-Machine Interface Based on Electroencephalogram and Electromyography
The Electfoencephalogram (EEG) and electromyography (EMG) sampled from skin surface are the primary information to mirror the idea of human being. The human-machine interface based on EEG and EMG is used to control machine such as a robot. It is a new taste to apply this type of interface to some special condition such as an astronaut controlling the outside robot in a space ship. Digital signal processor (DSP) is used as sample EEG and EMG in the device. The feature of signal is extract by algorithm running in DSP to control the machine. The speech recognition based on fixed Chinese words is included in the device. Many tests proved that the developed device is capable to control the robot for key operation on a panel with high reliability.
